DTS Neo 2:5 - Surround passthru?
I know DTS Neo takes a 2 channel signal and will matrix out a DTS 5.1 signal.... but out of curiosity, does anyone know how it handles or if it directly passes through signals that are already surround (like DTS 5.1 or Dolby Digital)?
Personally I like the idea of passing through original surround signal with the least amount of jimmying with the sound. Currently my set up is ATT Uverse STB HDMI -> TV (Samsung H7150) - Optical -> Surround system.
The TV has the audio out options of:
PCM - but i know this will only be 2 channel and my surround system with matrix it up to 5.1... not what I want
Dolby Digital - I know this is a compressed surround signal, but not sure how it handles incoming surround signals
DTS Neo 2:5 - I believe this is a less compressed surround signal than DD.
I'm going into the TVs HDMI inputs because I want to use the smart features of the TV and send the audio signal (surround preferably) to the Surround system. I also like this method because the TV allows delaying of the audio signal to allow for video latency.
